Texans hire Bob Ligashesky as special teams assistant sns.mx/Mbq7y0— Texans Daily (@TexansDaily) March 25, 2013
Could our prayers be on their way to being answered? Might this one act detox the Game Ball of Doom? And relase us from our wailing and gnashing of teeth whenever our special teams hits the field?
Interesting insight from the mothership
Ligashesky, 50, was special teams coordinator of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012. The Bucs led the NFL with four blocked punts. Ligashesky also was special teams coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers (2007-09), who won the Super Bowl in 2008, as well as the St. Louis Rams (2005-06) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2004). He was a special teams assistant for the Oakland Raiders in 2011 and coached tight ends for the Denver Broncos in 2010.
I think there's hope for our special teams now. He's been a coach. There might be reason to hope.
Keeping my fingers crossed!
Fire Marciano! might cease to be our battle cry for the reason that he actually gets fired =D.
hmmm why did Tampa let him go? Why is he taking a lesser position? Curioser and curioser.
And a really interesting article by Steph Stradley here
And Rivers basically answered my question before I asked it. Is Rivers the reincarnation of Johnny Carson's Carnac? You be the judge:
Of the 7 teams that Ligashesky was ST coordinator for, highest finish by FO rankings was 18th (04 Jags), and he oversaw 4 bottom-10 units.— Rivers McCown (@FO_RiversMcCown) March 25, 2013
It's the kind of signing where it feels like it was done just to try to make me think "huh, maybe Marciano isn't SO bad." Except I won't.— Rivers McCown (@FO_RiversMcCown) March 25, 2013
